Tlingit Painting

Brad Henry is a firefighter turned artist, who moved to the nation’s capital from Vancouver 20 years ago. Born in Whitehorse, Yukon, he comes from Tlingit and Vun Tut Gwitch’in roots. He has been creating art using traditional Pacific Northwest Coast design elements for almost 15 years. He notes that “these traditional design elements are as old as the hills and it is an honour to use them in our art.” Both the visual and musical art he creates focuses on sharing his cultural beliefs and traditions with others.
